chopping block. The Santa Cruz Police Department is fully staffed for the first time in more than a decade, and, along with the fire department, will actually see a modest increase to its annual budget. And through largely failing on its task of increasing revenues, the city was able to earn an extra $1 million by charging rent for land at places like the municipal landfill, water department and other cityowned properties that had been leased rent-free, until now. Wilson, Bernal and Mayor Cynthia Mathews are hoping the city will recover in a year or two, but each agrees that no Santa Cruzan will escape some effect of the budget crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to operate with the revenue we have, period,â&#x20AC;? says Mathews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact is, this will take a considerable toll on the city and on every resident.â&#x20AC;? In the midst of this financial drama, Santa Cruz has turned to the goodwill of its residents several times. Through charity of time and money, places like the Beach Flats Community Center and the Surfing Museum have been saved from closing, and Harvey West Pool has kept lifeguards on the watch. About eight weeks ago, city leaders openly tapped the ideas of their constituents by setting up a website that

provided information on the budget and a way for residents to offer suggestions and vote for their favorites. Shane Pearlman and Peter Chester, two local Internet entrepreneurs, donated their time and expertise to work with Santa Cruz Economic Development Coordinator Peter Koht and Mathews in creating budget., a website loosely based on President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hugely successful campaign website and the San Francisco internet phenomenon â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santa Cruz is a community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s masterful at finger-pointing,â&#x20AC;? says Pearlman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The site attempted to rephrase the dialogue from fingerpointing to coming together.â&#x20AC;? Users of the site are given a limited number of votes and an unlimited ability to suggest ideas. Other users can then view the ideas, vote for them and make comments, creating an easy-to-track dialogue that residents can follow from their couches. With 214 votes, the most popular suggestion from residents was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coordinate Public Services with other Local Jurisdictions.â&#x20AC;? Mathews, who responded to numerous user-submitted suggestions, wrote that the city already consolidates services like libraries and wastewater treatment with

the county, but says she is looking into doing the same with fire services. Other suggestions posted on the site, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Analyze Efficiencies Within City Systemsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Limit Police Department Overtimeâ&#x20AC;? were officially â&#x20AC;&#x153;acceptedâ&#x20AC;? by city leaders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the most part, we gained a lot of valuable insight from the website,â&#x20AC;? says Mathews, who will be implementing some of the websiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s functions when the Santa Cruz unveils its new official city website in the coming months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a number of instances where the comments were in line with programs we were already investigating. The suggestions that were accepted we plan on moving on in the coming year, if we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already.â&#x20AC;? George Sisson was a frequent user of the site. A recently laid-off former Santa Cruz IT support technician, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s felt the budget crunch as directly as anyone. He says that being able to voice his ideas online and show support for others is a major breakthrough for local government, although, he reminds, there is still nothing like the real thing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there is no substitute for real time interaction at a City Council meeting,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for people who are too busy, this website is great for keeping tabs on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on and for feeling connected.â&#x20AC;? Yet no amount of cuttingedge Internet technologies will make the pill of a slashed city budget any less bitter. The road back will be long and marked by sacrifice, just as it was after the earthquake. And when the work is done and the city of Santa Cruz recovers, it will likely be a different place from the one we live in now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can do it, though,â&#x20AC;? Mathews says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just going to be painful.â&#x20AC;? 0

The Governor Plays Hardball Bill Monning talks with Santa Cruz Weekly about negotiatingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or notâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; with Arnold Schwarzenegger 0GB@/176C97::


OR THE average Democratic lawmaker in California, the most vexing mystery playing out in state capitols right now isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t why Sarah Palin is stepping down or what will break the farcical stalemate in the New York Legislature. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Gov. Schwarzenegger, who just months ago united (relatively speaking) with Sacramento Democrats against their vociferously anti-tax GOP counterparts to pass a budget that included both cuts and revenue increases, has now adopted such a hardline stance against taxes that the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republicans look almost reasonable by comparison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he is driven by a huge ego, and he has to be interested in his legacy, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not quite sure how this stance helps, either,â&#x20AC;? says District 27 Assemblyman Bill Monning, a budget committee member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking us from crisis to a worse situation.â&#x20AC;? Monning spoke to Santa Cruz Weekly last Thursday, July 2, a day after the governor had vetoed a package of three bills that would have forestalled the issuance of IOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The governor announced, even before they reached his desk, that he would veto them because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t represent a solution to the entire $24 billion budget gap. Aside from the all-or-nothing quality of that announcement, what confounds Monning is that the content of the billsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; cuts and accounting maneuversâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own ideas, proposed in his original budget, which is why Republican lawmakers risked his wrath and passed them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trying to get anybody to agree to anything they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already agreed to,â&#x20AC;? Monning says. The punch line: the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move effectively raised the deficit by another $3 billion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s totally reckless and irresponsible,â&#x20AC;? Monning says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a monarchy than a democracy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

negotiating by press conference and I think showing tremendous incompetence. Bravado does not substitute for good governance.â&#x20AC;? That the governor seems to be getting a free pass from the pressâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;using his undeniable star quality to rivet media attention on his frequent press conferencesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is an irritant to the Democratic lawmakers who are on the losing end of what amounts to a public relations campaign over whether to raise revenue or try to close the budget gap entirely through cuts. There are members of the public who side with the Democratsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach, but Sacramento media have grown bored with the busloads of union and health care protesters gathered around the capitol each day, Monning says, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as if they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there. Meanwhile, the governor blames the legislature for not doing its job while rejecting any legislation that involves new revenue, including a $15 registration renewal fee that would have spared the state parks. Monning, a professor of negotiation and conflict resolution, says in effect the governor is refusing to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A basic principle of negotiation is if you reject a proposal, you make a counterproposal,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing is rejecting proposals.â&#x20AC;? This leaves the Democrats trying to figure out how to get their message out and win over the public. On Monday, Assembly Speaker Karen Bass did some posturing of her own. She boycotted a meeting with Schwarzenegger and criticized him for comments he made to New York Times writer Mark Leibovich about his attitude over the budget impasse (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone else might walk out of here every day depressed, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk out of here depressed,â&#x20AC;?

;C16;CA6The queen of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iquitarodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t revealing her reasons for leaving Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statehouse.

Palin vs. the Internet

The governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney threatens bloggers for speculating about why she quit 0G53=44@3G2C<<


Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BEEN a helluva Independence Day weekend in the Last Frontier. Wow! First the governor resigns (I had her nearly incoherent speech translated into English to make sure this was confirmed), then she allows no questions, no open media coverage, provides no serious explanation (save for basketball metaphors) and expects no one to wonder why in the world she would step down from the governorship, which is the only platform from which she can claim any political legitimacy. Palin has absolutely zero interest in running the state of Alaska. She steadfastly refused to live in Juneau after her first year there, had the gall to charge the state for residing at her home in Wasilla 600 miles away (thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new

ethics allegation on its way) and basically mailed in her performance as the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top administrator during Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent legislative session. She alienated virtually all the key legislators in her own partyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and had failed to move any key legislation forward since her return to Alaska from the national campaign trail last November. Her bizarre appointment for attorney general, Wayne Anthony Ross, was rejected nearly unanimously by the state Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a first in Alaskan history. Even in respect to energy policy, her supposed bailiwick, she has been categorically ineffective. When I asked those in-the-know what role Palin had played in putting together the recent pipeline deal between TransCanada and

Exxon, their response was simple: â&#x20AC;&#x153;None.â&#x20AC;? And just when you think it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any weirderâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the trailer trash revelations of Troopergate; the McCain camp calling her a â&#x20AC;&#x153;whack job from Wasillaâ&#x20AC;?; the turkeys being slaughtered in the background; her on-again, offagain attendance at GOP fundraisers, her unexplained resignationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;then Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney sends out a press release. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a full-fledged assault on the First Amendment. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s threatening to sue the indomitable Shannyn Moore, HuffPo, The New York Times, the Washington Post and half the Internet for speculating as to the real reasons that Palin stepped down from governor. In the end, there were only two possible explanations: (1) that there was some sort of bombshell about to explode; or (2) that Palin did such a wretched job as governor that she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything but quit. Van Flein is telling us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Door No. 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[S]everal unscrupulous people have asserted false and defamatory allegations that the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reasons for Governor Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resignation stem from an alleged criminal investigation pertaining to the construction of the Wasilla Sports Complex. This canard was first floated by Democrat operatives in September 2008 during the national campaign and followed up by sympathetic Democratic writers. â&#x20AC;? Then came the assault on free speech: â&#x20AC;&#x153;To the extent several websites, most notably liberal Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, are now claiming as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;factâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that Governor Palin resigned because she is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;under federal investigationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal options this week to address such defamation.â&#x20AC;? No one has claimed anything as fact. What radio host and blogger Moore and others, including myself, reported was that there were rumors of a pending investigation. The rumors have been circulating everywhere. Why? Van Flein tells us the answer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wayne Barrett, a writer for the left wing Village Voice, published these insinuations, on October 7, 2008 in a story entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Book of Sarah.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This was written in the style of one pretending to be amazed that so many people in a small town like Wasilla appear to know one another, support one another, and take on big projects together. Apparently that is uncommon in New York. Rather than recognize that leaders of a community often mobilize to accomplish projects, the writer offered

this up as an unusual and questionable association of special interests.â&#x20AC;? Van Flein then reminds us that Palin played politics on the Sports Arena project as well. Just as sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always done.

In the end, there were only two possible explanations: (1) that there was some sort of bombshell about to explode; or (2) that Palin did such a wretched job that she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything but quit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, Sarah Palin was then criticized by some of [sic] not showing enough interest in the project. The Frontiersman reported that at a public meeting with the Chamber of Commerce, an opponent of the project â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;accused Wasilla Mayor Sarah Palin of staying quiet about the arena because of her campaign for Lieutenant Governor.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? That would be the campaign for lieutenant governor where Palin was later caught using city of Wasilla resources to run her campaign. The same one in which she accepted tainted contributions from VECO (10 percent of her campaign funds), the same company at the center of Ted Stevenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corruption scandal. And the same Sports Arena that has been an economic disaster for Wasilla. Sarah Palin quit five colleges in her otherwise unremarkable collegiate career, before finally graduating from the sixth. She quit her job in television. She and Todd quit their snow machine dealership in Big Lake. She quit as chair of the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission. Now she has quit the governorship of the state she supposedly loves. Sarah Palin is a quitter. When the going gets tough, Sarah Palin quits. 0

Out of Africa

Ladysmith Black Mambazoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grammy-winning comeback year 0G/<2@3E57:03@B

HC:/<23@A!!Po!jut! ofx!bmcvn-!Mbeztnjui! Cmbdl!Nbncb{p!tusjwft! up!dpoofdu!Tpvui! BgsjdbĂ&#x2013;t!zpvui!xjui! uif!dpvouszĂ&#x2013;t![vmv! ifsjubhf/


HEN Joseph Shabalala announced his retirement last year from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, it seemed like the end of an epoch. For more than four decades, the amazing male choral group that he founded served as the most vivid and mellif luous voice calling for freedom, justice and peace in South Africa. While turning over leadership of the group to his son Thamsanqa, Shabalala said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mission and message will continue.â&#x20AC;?

But when the eight-member ensemble hits the West Coast for a series of gigs, including a threenight run at Yoshiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that opens on Friday, and a Kuumbwa-presented performance at the Rio Theatre on Monday, Shabalala will be holding forth from his usual spot at center stage. After a brief hiatus, it turned out that the legendary singer wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to relinquish the reins of a group that helped change the course of history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he missed it,â&#x20AC;? says tenor Albert Mazibuko, Shabalalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime vocal compatriot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I read that he was retiring on the news and we

thought he was just joking. I told him, now that you announced youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to leave the group I might follow you. He is grooming his sons to lead Ladysmith, but he decided he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to stay home, and Joseph is very much alive in the group.â&#x20AC;? Despite the retracted retirement, Ladysmith has undergone a stark generational change in recent years. The ensemble is still largely drawn from two related families, the Shabalalas and Mazibukos, but after several members were killed in South Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endemic violence, the majority of the ensemble consists of Shabalalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sons and cousins. ¨

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has changed in a good way,â&#x20AC;? says Mazibuko, Ladysmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only other founding member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been joined by young people who bring new energy and new ideas, and help us a lot when collaborating with other groups. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re familiar with music nowadays, unlike us. We want them to carry on with the music.â&#x20AC;? Ladysmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission has always extended far beyond the gorgeous harmonies and cascading songs drawn from traditional isicathamiya, a Zulu vocal style accompanied by graceful group choreography. A decade ago, Shabalala launched a foundation under the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to promote isicathamiya among a young generation entranced by hip-hop and Western pop music. Much more is being lost in the post-apartheid era, as young South Africans grow up with little sense of history. Released last year in the United States on Heads Up, Ladysmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent CD, Ilembe: Honoring Shaka Zulu, won the 2009 Grammy Award for Traditional World Music Album. It was conceived as

part of a consciousness-raising campaign when Shabalala and Mazibuko realized that even the younger members of the group didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about Shaka Zulu, the legendary king who forged the Zulu empire in the early 19th century. While his legacy is still controversial, Shaka Zulu provided a potent example of determination and resistance in the struggled against apartheid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shaka Zulu made us strong when we were growing up,â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when we talk about him with the young members, they never heard the story. It brought the idea to our mind that we should write some songs and dedicate the album to him. We talk about him a lot. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great inspiration to everyone, that he grew up raised by single parent, never complained and achieved what he wanted to achieve. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to complain about the past. Do what you want to do.â&#x20AC;? While Ladysmith celebrates traditional South African culture, the group continues its mission to bring isicathamiya to the rest of the world. ¨



july 8-15, 2009 A/<B/1@CH1=;

1=D 3@ j = CB =4 /4 @71/ The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest album is My Dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; African Sounds, a glorious collaboration with the SABC Choir that combines Zulu vocals with the soaring strains of gospel, providing a double dose of soul. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the latest step in Shabalalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brilliant campaign to transform a rigorous, highly competitive folk art into an international musical force. For most Americans, Ladysmith Black Mambazo appeared out of nowhere in 1986, with the release of Paul Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrated album Graceland. Providing the gorgeously textured vocals on tunes such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homelessâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diamonds On the Souls of Her Shoes,â&#x20AC;? the a cappella group seemed to meld perfectly with Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lilting melodies and impressionistic lyrics.

Shabalala was literally inspired by a dream in which he heard a particular blend of voices that he sought to duplicate in his group

While Simon came under sharp criticism for alleged musical imperialism, the group is still grateful for the opportunities he helped provide. After Simon produced the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1987 Grammy-winning album Shaka Zulu for Warner Bros. Ladysmith became a global force, contributing to film soundtracks (Coming to America, A Dry White Season and Cry the Beloved Country), recording with Stevie Wonder, Julia Fordham, George Clinton and Dolly Parton, and creating a number of powerful theatrical productions. Most importantly, the group helped

give voice to the resurgent spirit of South Africa in the post-apartheid era. Embraced by Nelson Mandela, Ladysmith accompanied the future president and thenâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;South African President F.W. de Klerk to the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo in 1993. The next year, the group sang at Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Mandela was released from prison he called us at home,â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said he wanted us to be with him when he was celebrating his birthday. When weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re onstage and he came up, singing with us, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is the kind of music I like. I listened to it when I was in jail and it gave me great strength.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Dreamworks Much like the blues, isicathamiya arose at a time when a people most needed strength. The sound was born in the brutal working conditions in South African mines. The vocal style spread to villages and townships when black mine workers returned home and brought isicathamiya back with them. By the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;40s, it had become a highly evolved vocal and dance form, with regular competitions to name the best group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at the tradition of Ladysmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal work, it comes from a long history of choral singing in South Africa,â&#x20AC;? says Pascal Bokar, a respected Senegalese guitarist who has lectured widely on African musical forms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The style of singing is very old, and represents the true tradition of Zulu music, and their work comes out of the tradition of the urban workman condition.â&#x20AC;? Born in the village of Ladyship in Natal province, Shabalala grew up hearing local groups compete against each other. Long before he had even formed Mambazo (which means â&#x20AC;&#x153;ax,â&#x20AC;? as in the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to chop down all competitors), he had already made a name for himself as an innovator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was 10 years old I collected the other boys, and we formed a group and called ourselves the Zulu Motos,â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko says, recalling the first time he heard his cousin, Shabalala, perform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1960 I saw Joseph and his group singing at a Christmas party, and they sang so beautiful. I told my group that when I grow up Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go to Durban and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll join him.â&#x20AC;? As a teenager, Shabalala worked in a factory in Durban for a number of years, then returned to Ladyship to pursue his dream of putting a group together. Indeed, Shabalala was literally


A/<B/1@CH1=; july 8-15, 2009 1=D3@AB=@G 

inspired by a dream in which he heard a particular blend of voices that he sought to duplicate in his group. He gradually recruited his brothers, Headman and Jockey, and his cousins Albert and Abednego Mazibuko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said let me explain what kind of singing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for,â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same kind of music, but I had a dream that we should develop something new. I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be patient with me and teach me how to do it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He explained that he was dreaming that the children that were singing for him every night, and the dream was teaching him how to put the voices together and make them sound better than before.â&#x20AC;? While conditions in South Africa lag far behind the hopes that accompanied Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release two decades ago, Mazibuko believes that Ladysmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music has played a key role in fostering Zulu culture and in bringing all South Africans together. The group endured decades of scuffling and hardship before attaining international success. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difficult paradox that becoming their nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foremost cultural ambassadors means spending at least eight months out of the year far from home. Mazibuko isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complaining however. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before we were struggling, but because we believed in what we were doing, and had something we wanted to share with the world, we persevered through the bad times,â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember when we traveled in those times we used to be stopped by the police, every time, everywhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time blacks were not allowed to travel, so when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go to Cape or Transvaal, they used to stop us,â&#x20AC;? he continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where are you going?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and we said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to sing. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a permit but we have music we want to share.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What kind of music?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We never answered that question by words. As soon as they asked that, we started a song. Every time, they shook their heads, and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is beautiful, you should share this with people,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and let us go. I could see the power of music to open boundaries, even in South Africa at that time.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Responsibility of Each and Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; :7:7/<93;>

Adrienne Rich keeps the faith in a new book of essays 0G;=::GH/>>


â&#x20AC;&#x2122;M LOOKING, as from the corner of my eye, for a certain kind of poetry whose balance of dread and beauty is equal to the chaotic negations that pursue us ... to dissolve both complacency and despair,â&#x20AC;? Adrienne Rich writes in the introduction of A Human Eye: Essays on Art in Society, 1997â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2008 (W.W. Norton; $24.95). A collection of speeches, lectures, literary reviews and book prefaces, Richâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest work offers critique, analysis and perspective on the power of writing to transform culture. As ever with Rich, politics are interwoven throughout. The title refers to a quote by Karl Marx, and the book includes an introduction to a collection of essays by Marxist theorists Che Guevara, Rosa Luxemburg, Friedrich Engels and Marx himself. Rich writes that they all speak â&#x20AC;&#x153;of human realization not as losing oneself within a mass collectivity but as release from the numbed senses, the robotization of advancing capitalist society.â&#x20AC;? All of the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essays, like much of Richâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing throughout her career, dive into the wreckage of personal and political transformation. Rich no longer gives interviews, but she did offer some insight to her own political orientation in an email after I asked her if it was appropriate to describe her as a socialist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Socialism has been a confused term in the vocabulary of capitalism,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see it as the sharing of essential material and social resources by all, a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;common wealthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of all, a responsibility of each and all. Such a system can never be perfected; it must constantly be evolving, recognizing

new needs and conditions. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an idea thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been argued, lived for and died for over centuries, around the world. In those terms I can certainly call myself a socialist. A socialist without a party or a country, for whom both feminism and Marxism have been essential strands.â&#x20AC;? The author of the landmark feminist/queer studies essay â&#x20AC;&#x153;Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existenceâ&#x20AC;? came out as lesbian in the 1970s. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Candidates for My Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Three Gay and Lesbian Poets,â&#x20AC;? she writes how queer studies began not in the bastions of higher education â&#x20AC;&#x153;but in spaces opened up by the movements of the 1960s and 1970s, the breaking out from self-denial into self-

definition, claiming agency, learning solidarity, arguing a different kind of future.â&#x20AC;? One of the strongest essays in the collection is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poetry and the Forgotten Future,â&#x20AC;? in which she calls on poets to consider the capacity poetry has â&#x20AC;&#x153;to remind us of something we are forbidden to see.â&#x20AC;? Rich refers to Adonis, a Syrian-Lebanese poet, who wrote that â&#x20AC;&#x153;modernity should be a creative vision, or it will be no more than a fashion. Fashion grows old from the moment it is born, while creativity is ageless. Therefore not all modernity is creativity, but creativity is eternally modern.â&#x20AC;? Rich, a longtime Santa Cruz resident, makes public appearances only rarely.

One of the greatest living American poets and essayists, her half-century writing career has encompassed constant and ever-shifting wars, waves of feminism and social movements, yet most of this collectionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both old and new worksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;seems timely, even urgent. For decades, Rich has urged us to live in and transform the present. In a poem from Your Native Land, Your Life, published during the Reagan era but still timely, she writes: Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll dream of a longer summer but this is the one we have: I lay my sunburnt hand on your table: this is the time we have.

0==;3@7/3FB@/D/5/<H/ The Santa Cruz Baroque Festival presents its annual Boomeria Extravaganza, offering hours of unique organ melodies, snacks, drinks and wine in the beautiful and bizarre Chapel Royal tucked beneath the redwoods in Bonny Doon. Visitors will also have the opportunity to crawl through the massive pipe organ itself, which was rescued by retired high school science teacher Preston Boom in 1953 when the San Jose church where it was housed got a new organ.

Gunfighters >3B3@;=C<B/7<)1=>G@756BÂ&#x2013; 'C<7D3@A/:ABC27=A

Michael Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Public Enemiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a skin-deep but good-looking story of John Dillinger 0G@716/@2D=<0CA/19


T IS well known that the last movie John Dillinger watched was Woody Van Dykeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine, compact Manhattan Melodrama. Showing us Johnny Deppâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dillinger in Public Enemies, director Michael Mann slows down the image of Manhattan Melodramaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Myrna Loy onscreen. Suddenly, Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hiring of Marion Cotillard as the female lead, Billie, is explained. He picked her because she looks like Loy. Previous takes on the life of Dillinger had themes like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crime doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t payâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Society is to blame.â&#x20AC;? Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was only a movie.â&#x20AC;? Mann carries out Public Enemies, a study of Dillingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career from its middle to its end, in darting, littlecam movements. If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the musicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;1940s jazz in a 1930s worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; the film would look Dogme-tized. The photography often uses high-def synthetic light: yellowish-white f lares of gun bursts and gritty magenta torches burning. Mann loves the machinery: the cars, the vintage locomotive sliding into Union Station and a three-engined plane bringing Dillinger to one of the jails that cannot hold him. Here are a couple of the gunfights and cloudscapes Mann does better than anyone around, including the exterior of a lakeside prison at Michigan City, Ind. Mann turns the famous shoot-out at the New Bohemia into a version of the Battle of the Wilderness. One gangster has a sensationally picturesque death; he goes out plowing the earth with his Tommy gun as if he were digging his own grave. Surfaces come to mind when you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear the dialogue or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell who the

new characters are supposed to be. In numberless close-ups, Depp emphasizes surface, too. Spilling out the capsulized details of his life in three or four lines, Dillinger asks Billie, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What else do you want to know about me?â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to keep us satisfied, too. Who am I? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the guy playing Dillinger, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who. Mann chases the Walker Evans out of the Depression. Everyone onscreen is a cop or a robberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with a few two-timing f loozies on the side. Leelee Sobieski, looking more like Kim Novak than ever, has some shots in a film that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up much feminine beauty. Billy Crudup commands the screen playing J. Edgar Hooverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he enunciates and has a clear purpose, unlike most of the characters. Stephen Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s psycho Baby Face Nelson seems modeled on Michael Badaluccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in O Brother, Where Art Thou?. The movie pegs Christian Baleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Melvin Purvis as a gunman who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle death, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his total character. Dillinger is caught in a pinch between Hooverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cryptofascist sympathies and the founders of organized crime in Chicago.

Neither crooks nor law enforcers have room for a lone innovator. The movie makes the master bank robber a gent, a showman, an ardent monogamous lover; when he takes hostages, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to relieve them of the humdrumness of their lives. Public Enemies moves along quickly for its length, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an adult gangster movie in a market that has mostly given up on adults. But the film never achieves that extra tang itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaching forâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;never establishes that link it reaches for, the link between those hard times and ours. The misguided attempts at relevance (an Abu Ghraibâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style interrogation is the worst of these) are immaterial to Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose as a cold, skin-deep entertainer.

PUBLIC ENEMIES (R; 140 min.), directed by Michael Mann, written by Ronan Bennett, Ann Biderman and Mann, photographed by Dante Spinotti and starring Johnny Depp and Marion Cotillard, plays countywide.

(2003, 2004) Quentin Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ne plus ultra revenge film is a tribute to the literally dozens of films that have ripped through this same plot before. And when it comes to revenge films, there has never been any shame in recycling. There are the American films like John Boormanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1967 Point Break and its more-

or-less remake, 1999â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Payback, or Jack Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1973 Coffy and its moreor-less remake, 1974â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foxy Brown (the latter two starred Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jackie Brown heroine Pam Grier). And it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a QT film if it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t also reference the long tradition of foreign action films that have worked all the angles of this setup, including 1992â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Xia dao Gao Feiâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is a remake of Point Break.

163@7(R; 100 min.)

One of the grand horizontals of Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Belle Epoque, Lea de Lonval (Michelle Pfeiffer) is ready for retirement and a hobby. She picks a ruinous kind: the care and feeding of a beautiful, diffident young man, nicknamed Cheri (Rupert Friend). Cheri is the son of Madame Peloux, Leaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frenemy. In Cheri, director Stephen Frears reunites with scriptwriter Christopher Hampton and star Pfeiffer to revisit the type of games all three of them played 20 years ago in Dangerous Liaisons. The film brings out Pfeifferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gloriousness, her translucent skin, the limbs and hair still golden. But this deeply Southern Californian actress tries to play a Parisienne through formal diction and an exhausted drawl. Something simpler might have worked better. Yet Kathy Batesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Madame Peloux walks away with this picture, not that she does much walking. She spends a good deal of the film with feet propped up, a half-smile on her face. Here is a woman, in author ZZ Packerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phrase, who wears her fat like a mink coat. She looks like a woman who knew how to keep her customers amused. (RvB) 3/AGD7@BC3 (PG-

13; 100 min.) Circa 1928: Larita, an outrĂŠ

American female racecar driver (Jessica Biel), arrives at the English country mansion of her new husband, John Whittaker (Ben Barnes). Still in possession of the place is his dragon of a mother, Mrs. Whittaker (Kristin Scott Thomas), and Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formerly wayward stepfather, Mr. Whittaker (Colin Firth). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to understand why Stephan Elliott decided to redo Noel Coward like a man trying to refurbish an antique with Day-Glo paint. Elliottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad, but he does go inadvisedly modern, adding a butt shot, a crunched Chihuahua and a bit about an English fox hunt Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d swear was pinched from Auntie Mame. (RvB) 4==27<1 (PG; 101 min.) The most necessary film of the summer. The outrages of corporate food production are exposed in this fast and infuriating documentary by Robert Kenner. Defying the lawyers, one corporate chicken farmer shows us her wretched, antibiotic-packed birds. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industry lobbyist is tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulator, as sure as todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pig is tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bacon. Drooling packed-in steers are fattened with cheap Iowa corn; it breeds E. coli in their guts. The nighannual outbreaks of E. coli are seemingly the cost of business, a price paid even by spinach-eating vegetarians. Director Kenner canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be accused of starry-eyed idealism. Food, Inc. reminds that if the United States could make Big Tobacco come to heel, then agribusinessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wasteful and deadly practices can be stopped. (RvB) B6357@:4@=; ;=</1=(R; 95 min.)

Comedy about a love triangle between a famous lawyer, a security guard and a vapid TV weathergirl. Thank God the French got a hold of this idea before VH1 did. (SP) B636/<5=D3@(R;

100 min.) A well-built, good-looking and satisfyingly low comedy with a sturdy silentmovie two-reeler plot and the wit to realize that the Three Stooges format is solid gold. A

quartet of Southern California types heads to Vegas for a bachelor party. Cut, eventually, to The Morning After: The groom has vanished, and the three chumps, rendered amnesiac by booze, must search for him. They are: kittywhipped, Larry-like Stu (Ed Helms), confident but wrongheaded Moe-style leader Phil (Bradley Cooper) and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;one-man wolf packâ&#x20AC;? Alan, played by the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standout, Zach Galifianakis, Curlying beautifully. Stick with it, since the first third is hit and miss; later, director Todd Phillips solidly builds the situations, thinking up strategies to bolster the risky comedy. (RvB) ;GA7AB3@¸A933>3@

(PG-13; 109 min.) Despite the disastrous John Q, writer-director Nick Cassavetes dives back into the health-care crisis with this story about a young girl (Abigail Breslin from Little Miss Sunshine) who was conceived as a testtube baby to provide organs for her dying sister (Sofia Vassilieva). Her attempt to free herself from her organdonor destiny leaves her mother (Cameron Diaz) in a glass case of emotion. (SP) B63>@=>=A/:(PG13; 107 min.) Boss lady Sandra Bullock and underling Ryan Reynolds fake an engagement for the benefit of the family of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bride.â&#x20AC;? Directed by Anne Fletcher. >C0:713<3;73A(R;

141 min.) See review, page 41. AB/@B@39(PG-13; 136 min.) Happily, J.J. Abramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; version of the 40-year-old story is a loving refurbishing of an old structure rather than a demolishing. Traditions honored include the green babe (Rachel Nichols) and the red-shirted ensign. As Kirk, Chris Pine himself is the ham this sandwich needs. Zachary Quinto is very poised as Spock, the tragic mulatto of space. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real tension arises in the partnership between Kirk and Spockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two halves of one great leader, calm calculation meeting insane daring. (RvB)


an idealistic couple with a multiracial von Trappâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; like family in Montreal. Not enough jokes, by a long chalk. Alison Janney, the standout, as a sharp-tongued mom, is only temporary relief from the two leads: the moral and physical center of this movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universe. The writers are San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Eggers and his wife, Vendela Vida, writers who seek the wonder and freshness in aged platitudes about the innocence of children. Director Sam Mendes makes this a Reactionary Road sequel to his last film Revolutionary Road; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sitcom for nesting hipsters with guest appearances by celebrities playing wacky relatives. (RvB)


(Unrated; 103 min.) American movies are usually about people with one problem; French movies are usually about people with a nexus of problems. In Olivier Assayasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; absorbing and smart new film, the problems of an extended family illuminate the abstract idea of artistic patrimony. (Previously, it was French cinematic patrimony, in Assayasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best-known film here, Irma Vep). At her 75th birthday party, HĂŠlène (Edith Scob) prepares to divide up her worldly goods among her children. These children are scattered all over the globe and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the wherewithal to keep a luscious summer house going; the place is stuffed with valuable art pieces, too, which will have to be doled out to relatives and museums. HĂŠlène was the longtime companion (perhaps more) of her uncle, a noted post-Impressionist; the slightly awkward legacy is puzzled out during the extended mourning session after HĂŠlène drops dead. It takes a perceptive director to remember the physical similarities between the young girl Scob was (in Eyes Without a Face) and Juliette Binoche, here playing HĂŠlèneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, the one who inherited the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic gifts. Mulling over the cultural and financial primacy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s migrated out of France into China and America, Summer Hours makes no recriminations. Assayas is gentle about the harsh edge of time scraping away things that are traditionally French, leaving behind the pop (mono)culture of superheroes, sneakers and drinking beer from the bottle. At a final house party for the family, he dwells on a trio of charming young modern girls dancing to Les Plastiscinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; terrific punk tune â&#x20AC;&#x153;Loser,â&#x20AC;? as if they were the Three Graces or something. (RvB) B63B/97<5=4 >3:6/; !(R;

106 min.) Grubby, truculent remake, with John Travolta looking like an old and jaded



rent boy as a criminal mastermind hostaging a group of subway riders. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opposed by Walter Garber (Denzel Washington), a low-key civil servant for the MTA; Washington downplays things until he practically vanishes. On the sidelines are a surprisingly ineffectual (if refreshingly low-volumed) hostage negotiator, John Turturro, and a butterball New York mayor (James Gandolfini) trying to survive his own scandal. (RvB) B@/<A4=@;3@A( @3D3<53=4B63 4/::3<(PG-13; 150

min.) Off to college goes young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) trying to forget the trauma of watching the robots destroy L.A. The government covered it upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;everybody is indeed just that stupid in a Michael Bay movie. Sadly, a chip of the spark cube stuck to Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shirt, and that starts the whole mess over again: indistinguishable robot-clobber with warlike threats (â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want a piece of me?â&#x20AC;?) is one uttered by these immemorial interstellar bots from beyond the stars). Manly Air Force officers in camouflage strut in slo-mo amid more cargo planes than one would see

in an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Army of Oneâ&#x20AC;? commercial. We cut to some frog-baiting: the Witwicky parents go to Paris, where they are pestered by mimes and eat snails. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;This looks like Canadian goose poop!â&#x20AC;? cries Dad.) If Transformers keeps ugly Americans away from France, this movie wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been made in vain for nothing. The Titanic-like sinking of an aircraft carrier is the standout animation, and it was an unusually good idea to stage a fight scene at the antique Delaware Power Station in Philadelphia. There seemed a little more breathing room in the finale, too, despite the incredible repetition of action sequences. Megan Fox, as the gurl, conceals her new tattoos with way too many clothes, so we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confirm rumors that one of the tats says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Angelina Jolie, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m taking your jobâ&#x20AC;? in Latin. LaBeouf is probed by crab-bots trying to find the source of his unkillable smirk. The deservedly famous Bro Rape video on YouTube is the only possible cure for the dorm scenes at ivy-covered PSIU. The alien hieroglyphics, when translated, read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He thinks he is seeing bad films instead of understanding that what

he sees is no longer film at all.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Rudolf Arnheim, 1935. (RvB) C>(PG; 96 min.) During the last Depression, a reject kid named Carl becomes fascinated with that darling of the newsreels, the intrepid dirigible pilot Charles Muntz, who discovered the bones of an immense bird in South America and was declared a fraud. Fast-forward and Carl (voiced by Ed Asner) is a square-headed, Spencer Tracy lookalike of 78. When trouble comes, he escapes in the only direction open to himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;straight up, with his battered house as the gondola to thousands of balloons, Unfortunately, a pesky 7-year-old scout, Russell (Jordan Nagai), is clinging to the front porch. The pair land in South America, where they discover a 13-foot-tall iridescent goonie bird and eventually Muntz himself (Christopher Plummer). Pixar spoils us. The news that Up is one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best films isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really news; Pixar has faith in an audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to feel without being manipulatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes them more than just a studio with an unusually dazzling command of the vocabulary of animation. (RvB)


(PG-13; 92 min.) Very minor and musty but often funny misanthropy comedy by Woody Allen. Larry David plays Boris, formerly a physics professor, shortlisted for the Nobel Prize (â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all politics, just like any awardâ&#x20AC;?); today, he is retired, a free-range castigator, teaching chess (brutally) to children and living in a brick-lined vault in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinatown. A waif called Melodie (Evan Rachel Wood) drops into his lap; Melodie takes Borisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprint completelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his rants, his phobias and his dislike of sexâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and marries him. A year afterward, the in-laws arrive for a first visit: Marietta (Patricia Clarkson) believes that she has tracked her runaway daughter down and is outraged to find the girl married to a neurotic man old enough to be her grandfather. Soon thereafter, Mariettaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estranged husband (Ed Begley Jr.) shows up in the apartment. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on a script Allen had in his drawer for several decades, and it often looks it. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often canned corn, give it its props; Allen knows how to make a civilized comedy even when denouncing civilization. (RvB)

Astrology Free Will

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of July 8 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): Miracle of miracles: A pointless pain in the butt will soon stop bugging you. Meanwhile, an annoying itch in your heart is subsiding, and may even disappear. As a result of these happy developments, you will be able to concentrate on a much more interesting and provocative torment that has been waiting impatiently for your loving attention. Actually, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ancient torment dressed up in a new package. But as before, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a torment youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had the right name for. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to change, however. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finally ready to find the right name for it, and when you do, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be halfway toward a permanent cure. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): When he was growing up, the father of basketball superstar Pat Riley forced him to play basketball with kids who were stronger and tougher than he was. He said it forged his son into a winner. I can see the principle at work, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come naturally to me. In my efforts to provide you with the parenting you missed as a kid, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always preferred a gentler, more nurturing approach. Nevertheless, the time has come to override my personal desires for the sake of your character-building needs. I recommend that you force yourself to play with grown-up kids whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stronger and tougher than you. 53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too agitated about the supposed â&#x20AC;&#x153;writing on the wallâ&#x20AC;? if I were you. The handwriting is not Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, for Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even that of a wise elder or young genius. So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attribute too much authority to it, please. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the opinion of someone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know any more about the ultimate truth than you do. So I suggest you cover it up with black spray paint and then carefully inscribe your own version of the writing on the wall. Reality is especially malleable right now, so the most forcefully expressed prophecy will probably come true. 1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): I believe that when you chatter carelessly about a big change thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the works, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in danger of draining it of some of its potency. So I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to trumpet or gossip about the gift thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on its way to you. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just mention that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming, and urge you to prepare a clean, well-lit place for it to land. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hint: It could, among other things, help you convert one of your vulnerabilities into a strength or inspire you to start transforming an area of ignorance into a future source of brilliance. :3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): At the farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market, an escape artist performed in the middle of the street. As a crowd gawked, he had two big strong men tie him up tight in a straitjacket and 50 feet of chain. For the next 20 minutes he shimmied and contorted and bent over backwards. His face grew red and sweaty. There were no Houdini-like magic tricks. There were no puffs of smoke or magic boxes or mirrors or distracting assistants. He rarely spoke as the ordeal progressed, but in the end, after the last of the chains slipped off and he wrestled his way out of the straitjacket, he said simply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I invite all of you to go home and use what I just did as a metaphor for your life.â&#x20AC;? It was a supremely sexy performance, and I realized maybe it would help you with your current situation. D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): Your concentration for dicey assignments, like conquering fear and adversity, is sharp. And I bet youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll summon a lot of stamina and resourcefulness if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pressed to solve a crucial riddle during a turning point in your own personal heroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey. On the other hand, humdrum details have the potential to flummox you, especially if they involve tasks youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not even that interested in or committed to. The moral of the story: Banish absentmindedness by keeping yourself focused on only the most riveting challenges. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): The sky will not start falling. But something resembling heavenly tokens may cascade down with such frequency that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be wise to keep looking up a lot. You never know when another piece of the blessed puzzle will come raining down. And it would be a shame to suffer the embarrassment of having your favorable fortune knock you over. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have ever guessed that a shower of good news would be such a tricky trial? A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): How well are you capitalizing on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique opportunities,

Scorpio? Since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re midway through 2009, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take an inventory. I hope that by now you have at least begun building the power spot or energy source that will serve as your foundation for the coming years. So much the better if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than halfway finished and will be ready for full use by the end of summer or early fall. Remember my promises: Life has been and will continue to be conspiring to get you settled in your ideal home base, supercharge your relationships with your closest allies, and connect you with the resources that will fuel your long-term quest.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): In the Middle Ages, people became adults when they turned 7 years old. These days, the threshold is much later. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy about that. In my view, the longer you can hold on to your playful irreverence and innocent lust for life, the better. Still, there is value in taking on the kinds of responsibilities that help you express yourself with grace and power. So I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to rush you, but it might be time to take a step toward being on the verge of tiptoeing to the brink of preparing to accept more adulthood into your heart. You could make the process less harrowing by hanging out with those rare wise guys and wise girrrls whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve survived the transition to greater maturity and a higher degree of professionalism with their youthful flair more or less intact. 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care what you feel this week, as long as you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel nothing. Get inflamed with hunger or justice or sadness or beauty or love, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t submit to apathy. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let yourself be shunted into numbness. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to be cut off from the source of your secret self, even if it means having to feel like hell for a while. And the odd thing is that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to go through hell, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go through hell. So to hell with your poker face and neutrality and dispassionate stance. Be a wild thing, not a mild thing. /?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): The Iliad is an ancient Greek epic poem that describes events near the end of the Trojan War. Most modern critics regard it as a foundation stone of Western literature. In my opinion, though, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly just a gruesome tale of macho haters who are inflamed with pride, treat women like property, and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop killing each other. I share the perspective of poet Diane di Prima, who once had a dream in which the Iliad was cast as gangsta rap. Now please adopt the style of our critique for use in your own life, Aquarius. What supposedly noble or important situation is actually pretty trivial or clichĂŠd? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for you to tell the truth about the hype.

>7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): â&#x20AC;&#x153;May you live in interesting times.â&#x20AC;? That old toast is actually a droll curse meant to be heaped upon an enemy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interestingâ&#x20AC;? implies rapid change, rampant uncertainty, and constant adjustment. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferable is to live during a boring era when stability reigns. Or so the argument goes. But I reject that line of thought. I celebrate the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re embroiled in interesting times. I proclaim our struggles to navigate the sharp turns and uphill climbs to be a jubilee of the first degree. What fantastic luck it is to be on the planet when everything mutates! May we be up to the task of bringing heaven down to earth. May we be worthy of the trust the universe is placing in us. Now get out there, Pisces, and enjoy the hell out of the epic and entertaining drama weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stewarding. This is your time to be a leader and a luminary.

Could your car be converted to run on batteries instead of gas? Would it provide the speed and range you need? How hard is it to convert? What does it cost to convert and operate an electric car? These questions and others will be answered in a one-day workshop.The early portion of the talk will cover general information about conversions - cost, performance, environmental issues, etc. Then the speakers will get into the nuts and bolts, from choosing a suitable chassis, stripping it, installing the components and wiring, to charging, maintenance, and driving techniques. Conversion parts will be available to see. Presenters are Mike Brown and Shari Prange of Electro Automotive, which has been in the electric vehicle conversion parts business for 30 years. Space is limited. Advance registration is required. Fee is $100.00.To register, please send name(s), phone number & email (in case we need to contact you) and payment to Electro Automotive, PO Box 1113, Felton, CA, 95018. or 831-429-1989 For more info see
